My name is Joe Bong and I have recently come onboard Steadfast as the Chief Revenue Officer. In this role I am spearheading our sales and marketing initiatives and leverage my experiences in the world of IT to position Steadfast as the Leader in the Midwest for Data Center Services. Part of these initiatives is forming a clear definition as to what Steadfast stands for, what we offer and how we differentiate ourselves from the rest of the field.
Steadfast is an IT Infrastructure/Data Center Services Company. We offer the full spectrum of infrastructure services, public cloud, private cloud, managed dedicated servers, colocation, and disaster recovery out of our data centers in Chicago and New York. Our Managed Services wrapped around these services are unmatched within the industry and include design, implementation, managed security, day to day management of client equipment, and pro-active 24/7 monitoring. Our 24/7 support is "always there" for you with experienced systems administrators on the data center floor, not in some remote help desk that takes hours or days to ramp up or solve a problem. Even though our service levels are unrivaled, we are consistently 20-30% less expensive than our larger competitors (Rackspace, Equinix, Amazon) as our focus is on true, long term business relationships. Succinctly put, Steadfast wants to handle your IT infrastructure needs, so you can focus on your core business, making us a great alternative to any other data center service provider in the market.
I have been in this business for 25 years and have seen few opportunities to be a part of with the potential that Steadfast has. We have done a fantastic job at this point of growing by referrals and word of mouth based on our customer service and reputation. We are now aggressively taking our message to the market and are already seeing our revenue increase, as people are starting to know who we are and the services and value proposition that we bring to the table. I am committed to growing our company and becoming a fixture in the Chicago marketplace and Steadfast plans on expanding into new markets/geographies over the next couple years. This will create many opportunities for our employees, deliver broader services to our customers, and give everyone a chance to be a part of something really exciting.
I invite you to contact me if you have any questions about my role at Steadfast or would like to get involved in our partnership program. We're always looking for partners to form successful relationships with and help grow together. If you're interested please contact me at JoeBong@steadfast.net and I'd be more than happy to discuss any opportunities with you.
I'm very excited about everything we have going on here at Steadfast. I hope this glimpse into our operations has you excited too. Thanks for reading, and thanks for choosing Steadfast.
